If you do not mind me asking, what do you pay for the St. Peter's Funeral Plan? A while back my Wife and I tried to work out the monthly rate but went in circles with what seemed to be an expensive way of doing things compared to saving to pay outright. We managed to speak a little about things last night and I told her I do not want to end up in a coffin in the house for a week with a Chicken eating rice over my face. I would prefer to be either cremated or buried PRONTO without a Church Service so try and do all in-house at the Funeral Home. Building a house is a good idea I feel, but I do not want to overdo it, if my Wife went back to her old job at the Bakery at 100/150php per day, and the Electricity came to 5,000 pesos per month, then it would be unviable for her to live in and attempt to run such a house, so I am hoping to build something that uses less electricity and is easy to maintain. Quiet a few of the relatives here raise Pigs, and they make good money from it (at a Filipino level) so we will also be looking at that along with some Goats etc. We have a 4M x 8M Bamboo Chicken Coop and are slowly breeding up, starting from just a few Chickens we now have 30+ and growing. The plan is to end up with meat for us (to save buying at a higher price at the Market) and fresh Eggs where we end up with enough where we can look at selling to locals. Native Chickens fetch a higher price per kilo (and are tastier IMHO) so she is mainly focusing on those which also do not suffer as many illnesses as other breeds. I would also like if she can harvest some of the Pigs and freeze the meat to sell correctly packaged in clip-seal packets along with the better cuts of the Chicken. If she can sell the better cuts of meat for income and eat the less appealing cuts of meat then she can sustain herself and our Daughter. The other idea is to sell the Piglets as soon as they are weaned to avoid expensive Feeds to fatten them up. We are also planting Fruit Trees, I am trying to raise Lemon and Avocado Trees as the fruit sells well at higher prices, along with local Fruit Trees like Jack Fruit, Apple Mango, Lime, Marang, Custard Apple, Santol, Papaya, Coconut etc and want to also try Passionfruit, Mulberries as something different which will hopefully sell okay locally. We also have a large Sambag Tree which the fruit is used for Sinigang. Apparently you can use that in sweet & sour dishes along with sweets so I hope to further investigate this Tree. I am hoping she will be able to step it up to cooking up dishes using some of our own Fruits and selling to local Eateries or Restaurants. Once we are living on the Lot I want to try and have above ground gardens beds built using Hollow Block where we can fill with compost and grow vegetables. Papa currently grows vegetables on our Lot while we are not living there and it helps to fund their lives and provides us with fresh vegetables when they are in season. I would also like to have a few small Fish Ponds built as local people are able to acquire free fingerlings if they have their own Fish Ponds so I am hoping that will also go towards helping my Wife and Daughter to become more self sustainable in the future. Now all I have to do is live long enough to see this through!
